Description

  • Feel the stars align each time you hit the pavement in the Newton® Kismet II running shoe!
  • Predecessor: Kismet.
  • Support Type: Overpronation/Stability.
  • Cushioning: Lightweight, flexible response.
  • Surface: Road.
  • Differential: 4.5 mm.
  • Adjusting to Newton running shoes will depend upon several factors including: your current running shoes, your running form, gait efficiency, as well as your speed and flexibility. Those new to natural running form, or those transitioning from a shoe with traditional cushioning will benefit from spending adequate time adjusting. This is because your body will need time to lengthen the muscles and tendons on the back of the leg and under the foot.
  • Newton recommends first-timers walk in their shoes for several days to become accustomed to the level platform. Walking barefoot on safe and comfortable surfaces can also be helpful. Once ready, begin by introducing short runs of no longer than 15 minutes every other day. Gradually add 10-15 minutes as your feet and leg muscles begin to strengthen. If you experience soreness that persists for more than two days, reduce time in shoes immediately. Rest and ice the area until the soreness subsides, then slowly begin introducing time in shoes again.
  • Seamless mesh upper with lightweight synthetic overlays.
  • Allover reflective hits.
  • Plush tongue and collar.
  • Breathable fabric lining.
  • Fixed foam insole supplies light underfoot comfort.
  • Action/Reaction Technology: Highly responsive, trampoline-like and engaging midsole cushioning.
  • Biomechanical Sensor Plate promotes a lighter, more efficient stride.
  • Five-lug P.O.P. 2 outsole platform.
  • Durable s.h.a.r.c. outsole material in the forefoot.
  • Imported.
  • Measurements:
    • Weight: 9 oz
  • Product measurements were taken using size 8.5, width B - Medium. Please note that measurements may vary by size.

These shoes are amazing. The force you to run correctly. I was getting horrible shin splints and a lot of soreness in my quads. With these shoes I do not get any shin splints and hardly get sore which makes me think I was running totally wrong. Light weight and comfortable. Definitely recommend giving them a try. I ordered them a half size up from my typical shoe size. Most runners get shoes a half size bigger or full size bigger - this is a matter of preference.

This is my fifth pair of Newtons and I have to say that my body feels so much better running and dancing in them. They support is great. This shoe is great, but runs about 1/2 to 1 full size smaller than any of my other Newtons.

This is my 4th pair of Kismet's, which is my favorite running shoe. I'm a little disappointed in the new fit. It runs smaller, even though the length is the same. The additional padding and the change of the toe box seems to be causing it. I am going to try a 1/2 size up and hope my issue with this update goes away. The problem is, the toe box is narrower and the outside of my foot below the pinky toe protrudes out through the mesh. It's not protruding my bunion area, just my outside area. The main issue, though is the white striping detail across the top. They moved it to the center more now so it rubs the whole length of my big toe while walking. As any runner knows, this is a "no no" unless you want a black toenail that will eventually fall off ð???ð???. Fingers crossed the next size up works as the initial try on was a dream with all the new padding.

These run very small. This is my 4th pair of Newton Kismets. My first pair was an 8.5. My 2nd and 3rd pairs were 9's. This new model runs even smaller. I think I need a 10 to have more room, which is crazy. I do not care for model update. disappointed.
